5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative game for an innovative system November 20, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game earlier today and must say that I cannot stop playing it. I have used it with the Wii Fit board and can say that the designers must have spent a lot of time configuring it. For any skateboarders this game is extremely intuitive and mimics tricks done on real skateboards. The missions get considerably harder as time goes on and as with real skateboarding, you cannot expect to get everything at once.

The graphics are reminiscent of Thrasher Skate and Destroy for PS1, but considering this is a Wii game, it looks great. As with all skateboarding games, there are many pros and real life sponsors to help with your look and deck in the game.

I would highly recommend this game to anybody who is interested. As with many Wii games, you can only blame yourself when you don't land that nollie 360 flip, as it is your fancy footwork (or not so) that is controlling your character. 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Get up off the couch and onto your skateboard! November 21, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Used with the balance board, this is definitely the game to get if you want some great leg/ankle exercise and to work up a sweat without even realizing you're exercising. I just got the game and am already finding it very addictive. You can play it with just the Wiimote and nunchuk or just the Wiimote, but the realism of using the balance board is what really makes the game for me. There are six different areas of the board where you put your weight to move, turn and do different tricks. You use the board in combination with the Wiimote. For example, you use the A button to push your board along. I liked that you have the option of changing the sensitivity of the board. I have it on the high for now, but as the game progresses and gets more difficult, I may change that. For now, I like the way it feels and the way the board responds.

It takes a little while to get the hang of controlling the board to do different tricks, but once you get the hang of it, most of it is intuitive. And, like most games it gets more difficult as you progress through the game so no worries about not having enough challenge here.

The game starts in San Vanelona where a bunch of disasters have caused big time damage and an evacuation so you have room to skate without interference. Playing in the career mode, the first thing you do is to learn how to make the board go and do simple maneuvers. After that, you're taken to a bunch of different locations like London, Paris and Barcelona and hooked up with a video journalist who takes videos of your character. It seems like a pretty good story line and should add interest to the game as it progresses. There are challenges that you can either own or kill.

2.0 out of 5 stars For parents January 5, 2010
By Lisa
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
One important aspect that parents might consider is the language used in this game. I would not expect the "f..." word to be mild, but the rating apparently does. My 10 year old loves the game, but he plays with the volume off because of inappropriate language.

5.0 out of 5 stars great game! 3 control schemes = 3 levels of difficulty!! November 21, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game. I got it the day it came out, beat it 2 nights ago. It is easy to pickup and play, but hard to master. My 18 month old kid can hold the wiimote and shake it around and bust all kinds of fliptricks, but steering, executing speciific tricks is of course harder. The career mode was great, and I think the 3 control setups are really 3 difffernt difficulty settings. The easiest is the wii remote and nunchuck together, as it is really easy to steer and turn your 360s and backflips. Career mode was a breeze with this. Now I am replaying with wii remote only. Harder to get it to spin 360s in the air...but doable. Lots of practice required there, career mode is harder this way. Finally the balance board is touchy, and hard to learn, some tips are to turn the sensitivity down all the way and work your way back up..also go into your gear menu, and skateboard, then tune your trucks to be very tight. that helps with the steering. But after day 3 with it, it is getting better and is much more immersive... best in pools/halfpipes for vert if you ask me...I definately broke a sweat.

Graphics are a mixed bag, I like the art style and though they do have jaggies, they dont matter to me.
you are focused on the skateboard, and the wheels, and lining up your tricks, you dont notice or care that the avatar's legs are jaggy.

They focused on the gameplay and the graphics of the board, wheels, etc...rather have that then a beautiful looking game that doesnt control well.

Finally multiplayer is taking turns, which is cool, as events are usually short. THe best is the Hall of MEat, crash as hard as you can mode. My wife and I have spent hours beating the ^%$# out of our avatars.

Enjoy, if you are a fan of skating, this game is a no brainer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Hard!! But should be fun with practice. January 30, 2009
By H2O
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got Skate It solely because it uses the Wii Fit Balance Board. I enjoy playing it, but I suck, I am sure I will get better. I think it is hard because the game is well designed and there is a lot of detail to the movements. The Balance Board sensors seems well designed in the movement.

I am a 40yr old mom I am enjoying it. I am sure I am not the demographic its aimed at yet I even like the music. It is not a lot of exercise but I do feel it in my calves when I'm done.

I actually got it for my 7 year old. He is a great gamer and has played Tony Hawk games before. But he was very frustrated using it with Balance Board. I think that since he weighs less then 60 pounds it made it harder for him. It kept saying he was jumping and wasn't. He gave up on the balance board and is using the controller. He is really enjoying it now. He can control it just fine with only the nunchuk and the controller. I am a little disappointed that he just sits on the floor now. I wanted him to play a physical game and use his body not just his fingers.

I don't know if it is much better then the other skating games if you don't use the Balance Board. There is some twisting the remote during jumps so that adds a little more then standard game control. But I am sure you could save $20 and get an other skating game cheaper and just as much fun if you are not going to use the board.

It shows you what bones you have broken when you crash. He loves that and he has broken everything!! Sometimes he actually crashes on purpose just to see how bad he can get hurt.

I think that 7 is too young for the game. He can play it but not to its potential. Maybe a more patient child would be able to learn it on the balance board. I will still keep it for myself and see if I can get even close to good.
